Students' School Computer Account Login and Password
Student Accounts Information
Updated for the 2019-2020 School Year as of August 8, 2019
PPS student accounts for all students in grades KG through 12 are automatically created once the student is enrolled in Synergy. Students can use their account to access GSuite for Education, StudentVUE, Destiny library system, Clever portal, and other services. Students in grades 9 through 12 also receive an Office 365 account.
STUDENT USER NAMES
PPS student user names are created by combining the first letter of the student's first name with the first 10 letters of the student's last name followed by the last for digits of the student's PPS ID number.
Here are two examples:
Example 1: Student John Smith with an ID# 123456 becomes username: jsmith3456.
Example 2: Student Jane Smith-Jackson with an ID# 112233 becomes username: jsmithjacks2233
All student passwords are reset to the appropriate default password for their grade level in early August each year, and students can then change their password to their own, confidential password. Students in grades 6-12 are required to change their password from the default by October.
Students are to use the PPS Password Manager to set up their question/answer profile so they can reset their own password if they should forget it. Besides being a great service for them, it eliminates the need for teachers and staff to reset their passwords.
Passwords for grades 6 - 12 must be a minimum of 8 characters from at least three of the following character types:
- English uppercase characters (A through Z)
- English lowercase characters (a through z)
- Base 10 digits (0 through 9)
